    Aim High: The Effects of Online Teaching in Air Force Enlisted Leadership Education

    Mack Arthur Cockrell
    The purpose of this three-stage Delphi study was to analyze the beliefs of a panel of experts in the field of enlisted leadership education concerning the effectiveness of converting the Air Force's Enlisted Professional Military Education program from resident to online instruction. The author suggests the program’s transition from resident to online learning could result in significant cost savings; however, a premature transition of the program—without verifying the outcomes—could render graduates of the program less effective leaders.

    Instructor Experiences in Traditional, Online, and Hybrid Continuing Education Courses: A Case Study

    Dr. Leah Flores Goerke
    The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine instructor experiences during course transitions from hybrid formats that combine online and face-to-face instruction to fully online instruction using research-based practices. The findings of this study would suggest traditional courses could be transitioned from traditional to online and hybrid delivery with particular attention to allowing sufficient time for course redesign, incorporating interactive online teaching strategies, and providing robust professional development for new online instructors.

    Student Satisfaction in Traditional, Online, and Hybrid Continuing Education Courses

    Dr. Leah Flores Goerke
    This mixed-methods research study examines student satisfaction of traditional, hybrid, and online delivery of two military continuing education courses using research-based practices. Study findings suggest that traditional courses could be transitioned to online and hybrid delivery with particular attention to ensuring that the courses contain job-related content, high-quality instructors incorporate interactive activities, and school staff personnel provide robust support.
